Re: bottom paint Petit Hydrocoat

We switched from Micron Extra ( which I had good two year results with) to Ultima 60 last year. The boat stayed in the water over the winter, and when the diver went down on her two weeks ago said the bottom was pristine. Untima 6 is 60% copper and also has the anti slime ingredient. We switched because the ablative slough off point matched our sailing speed more often than the Micron did and on T37chefs recommendation. We have been very happy so far with this paint. (We are on the Mid Chesapeake)

Step 1 complete:

Remember, this is the keel that was dropped, and had new keel bolts installed. When it was re-installed, they bedded it with 5200, then wrapped it in fiberglass cloth, and faired it to the hull with epoxy.
